Description

High-impact co-authored article on popular individualism and the transformation of British politics has informed public understanding of the term 'individualism'. Article appears as a key reference point on this wikipedia page defining 'individualism'. 

"British historians such as Emily Robinson, Camilla Schofield, Florence Sutcliffe-Braithwaite and Natalie Thomlinson have argued that Britons were keen about defining and claiming their individual rights, identities and perspectives by the 1970s, demanding greater personal autonomy and self-determination and less outside control, angrily complaining that the establishment was withholding it. Historians argue that this shift in concerns helped cause Thatcherism and was incorporated into Thatcherism's appeal."
